Some lakes south of Hutch

4 posts in this topic

I dont think this was the right posting area but this was as close as I could find. I was wondering about some lakes south of hutch called Allie and Preston. I live in Shakopee it looks like Hwy 212 will take me through Glencoe and into the general area. From there Im not quite sure and am still studying the Mn state map. These lakes are not very big and appear to be about 12 feet deep. Anyway I was just wondering about general species activity and some insight on weather it's worth the drive for some late afternoon and night action. Thanks.

I live near both lakes in question. I have fished preston once,this winter. I caught afew. They were not huge. But the action was not bad! 6 bites 4 fish. hour and a half on ice. Good luck!

Was on Preston for most of the day Saturday, fished several different areas and caught nothing bigger than 11". Caught a bunch, but nothing worth keeping.

Thanks big Ds. Ive been waiting along time for a response. It sounds pretty slow. I never made it out there any way but lake allie sounded like a decent little walleye lake but maybe ill try the kandiyohias. Or maybe head more north to some prime waters.

      You were in the right area, maybe just the wrong time.  I went out late this afternoon to see if the house my Dad has been using came through the "flood" OK and decided to drop a line when I was there. When I first dropped the hook down the hole a walleye screamed up off the bottom and slammed it 5 feet off the bottom. So out of curiosity I just sat there and jigged 4 to 5 feet off the bottom and they kept coming up and slamming it. They never touched the dead stick that was set 1 foot off the bottom.  All I can think of is that with the snow cover gone they could really see something up against the sunlight. I hadn't seen the walleyes that aggressive all winter.  maybe it was because I was fishing in a hole about 20 inches wide due to the water running down it.   No I don't think so cuz I have a big roll of duct tape and a bunch of white sheets. I'll wrap me, the Jeep and the dog in white sheets. We'll be just like ghosts.  OOPS, just remembered that the snow is all gone. I really think that after all the years we each could stick a pin in a lake  map guessing where the other one would be and we would each be within 1/4 mile. From his description fishing tech was right on the eastern edge of your favorite area.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.
